Hi Everyone. I’m hoping someone can help with an annoying issues with my music playback.
I use Windows 11 pc and iTunes to play music to all my Sonos Speakers.
Previously. No issues streaming to a Play 5, Sub, 4 x ones and 2 x Roams. Perfect playback.
Lately I’ve been having drop outs. Only for a second but increasing in frequency lately.
I’ve reset all speakers.
All updates applied.
Put them all on the 2.4ghz band.
Disabled the 5ghz band in case it was interfering - made no difference.
I’ve tried them with just one speaker at a time in the hope one speaker was interfering with the network.
Tried several different channels on the router.
Tried the different Sonos Net Channels 1, 6, 11
Connected a One to the router to create a Sonos net. That didn’t resolve the issue.
Bought a Boost - that didn’t resolve the issue.
Bought a new modem / router - that didn’t resolve the issue.
Nothing solves the issue.
Playing music stored on my phone/iPad plays back perfectly.
Tried other windows 11 pc but same issue.
Music file types makes no difference. m4a mp3 wav aiff.
Speakers in the same room as the router/modem are affected as well as speakers in the rooms upstairs too so not a signal strength issue I don’t think.
Still the issue prevails.
The most peculiar part is it always starts at track 8 or 9 onwards of any album I’m playing via iTunes from a pc.
Has anyone else encountered this and fixed it?
Any help appreciated and sorry for the long post x
